In-Car Camera Can Be a Police Officers' Guardian Angel

In the field a police officer uses their training to assess crime. The officer spends most of their time patrolling the highways, arresting criminals and saving lives of others.

With the aid of an in-car video system, you can remember exactly how a crime scene looked and felt. It's very hard for a police officer to recall what is said days later from an incident. The car camera system will let the officer review the footage to get all the facts correct.

This is really important now days, with a friendlier police community based department trying to stay away from physical incidents while on duty. Community policing has some great opportunities for law enforcement. The biggest is the ability to ask the community and politicians for funding for police car cameras. The agency now has a way to track their interactions with citizens and prove that they made an accurate arrest. One of the advantages will make itself known quickly, racial profiling claims will be dealt with in an efficient timely manner now that video is involved. There are way too many complaints about officers pulling over suspects based on color or ethnicity. Once the video footage from the in-car camera system is reviewed, the supervisors can make a decision on the conduct of the officer.

True to form, we find that the police car video cameras place accountability on officers who are not conducting themselves in a professional manner according to the state guidelines. Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, and District Attorneys can watch video recordings from the car camera recording systems on a timely basis to review the officers, helping ensure a better police department.

Here is a complete list of the perks a police car camera has to offer agencies:

1. Protects the officer and the police department against false accusations.

2. An intact chain of custody for, the evidence to be turned into the district attorney

3. The car camera footage helps officers improve safety

4. The police department can standardize conduct and make policy changes by using the police in-car cameras

5. Officers will feel protected by the dash-cam system re-enforcing their side of the incident

6. The in-car video camera footage can be released to the public, showing full transparency and avoiding conflict with citizens groups

7. Easy management of video evidence, stored in a central safe location

8. The lower court cost of defending the agency against law suits

9. Greater convictions of DUI and criminals, because the video evidence is so definitive

10. So the training of beginner cops using the in car video cameras can correct mistakes made by training cadets.

11. All Studies point to one conclusion, that the use of police dash camera systems eliminates complaints

The major study published by the International Association of Police Chiefs states that 94% of all complaints against officers are dismissed at the front desk if there is an in-car video camera involved.

A whole host of complaints against police officers goes away when the suspects learned that the officer's vehicle was equipped with a digital police dash camera system. This video evidence can certify a ticket or an arrest. 

With a larger and every increasing amount of police car video cameras coming online in the 2015 year ending, just over 60% of the police departments utilize digital camera systems. The in car cameras will be becoming an ever increasing part of fair policing policies also known as community oriented policing.

In today's society, there are many different opinions on who is responsible for committing a particular crime while an officer is on-scene without video (10-8) on duty. In the past, the cost of storage of analog products where prohibited. Now that the most technologically advanced police in-car video cameras utilize digital video and hard drives, storage is very affordable, the video footage can be stored for years or even decades. The shear fact that a police department can store dash-cam videos for years will allow them to protect themselves in the future if a dispute erupts. 

The police car video systems recently have advanced capabilities and are able to transfer data through wireless options to the headquarters. The super features also include instant identification of license plate numbers so officers know if the car they are approaching is driven by dangerous suspects. 

In conclusion

Police Car Camera Automatic Hands Free Wireless Downloading/Uploading from the Police Car to the Police Station

The Police in-car camera is the most vital piece of equipment in the vehicle today, providing a real advantage to police departments who are buying them.

Police car video systems can, in addition, offer instant verification of license plate numbers, and ensure proper management of law and order. 

The Key Illuminating Advantages of Video Camera Systems in Police Cars

Video recording security technology has shown to be very important to the task of detectives. Locating criminals and providing video evidence in court strengthens the case using the police vehicle camera system. The dash-cam cruiser system allows a police chief to view and teach officers the correct way of doing their duties. The very stressful occupation of being a law enforcement officer, needs an impartial witness to their duties. Once the camera systems were installed in their cars, a large majority of officers began to enjoy and count on the silent video witness.

Analysis of the crime situations - Car police camera system give the officers and detectives the ability to review video evidence, with specific goals in mind. The inspection of officer behavior can reduce the claims against the department. The advent of the dash-camera system has allowed law enforcement agencies to address attitudes that may be an issue with officers completing their duties. The greatest advantage is the law officers security.

The Public Perception - It's sad to say, but in certain regions in the United States, law officers are looking at in an unfavorable light. The important issues are police brutality and profiling. The effective weapon is the HD in-car police camera video system, combating through video evidence what the opinion of the public is saying. Letting the public actually see the police dash-cam videos add to transparency and good will to a community. The car video recording equipment adds a third eye that is honest and is amazing. If the agency has added the latest police car camera technology their videos, they will be shot in HD or 1080P.

Recorded Evidence Footage - Video from the police cars continuously prove their financial investments. The criminal cases that go to court are provided with video evidence from the dash cams are extremely helpful in convicting criminals. The key cornerstone of a successful police department has to be built upon a high quality police car camera video recording system.
